Tenth period ivaiting for the hell 
is a lonely time 



Listless, tired girls sit in the yellow desks 




One smiles at her 
friend to say 




They sport Sassoon cuts . . . 




white stockings.

dreamland . . . 



All are content — 




or seem so. 



. . . placid faces hide inner struggles. 





The eternal prohlems — 

roligion, philosophy, 

aireclion, decision, 
seethe within them. 

There is no set of answers 
Sufficient in scope, 

that can be quichly served up 
to satisfy the group. 

Indeed, no answer can exist 

until, by deliberate effort 

it is found. 
Private search leads each of us 
to the discovery of personal uniqueness, 
and the corollary need 
for personal solutions. 

A set of unique problems 

with its singular set of answers '— 
These are the components of personality. 

Each girl is a puzzle, 

a comple.x jigsaw of pieces 
which, though widely scattered, 

are joined in a flexible unity 

by G-d-given magnetism. 

That she shares many pieces 

with other puzzles 

in no way detracts from her individuality; 

for she alone holds the key 

to the ultimate conjunction 

of the pieces. 

Strange are the puzzles, 

and stranger still 

their relation and interaction. 
Strange it is, that a puzzle 
of myriad pieces, 
can itself be a piece 

in the filigree of others. 

It is to the strong and 

malleable structures, 
these eager receptors and creators of experience, 
that the world, 

in breathless expectation. 

is given.

fending women's rights 
(when you get married,

husband changes his 
name to yours), and 
studying Braille . . . We 
get caught in the dark 
and Miguel comes along 

—to turn on the lights, of course . . . Senor Cantor 
is voted he-man of the year . . . Rav Rubel makes 
our heads go round and is unanimously chosen 
Freshmen idol . . . Freshmen out-do their super- 
cilious upperclassmen and place first in the Com- 
petitive Assembly . . . Gitty and Trina try to clean 

up the basement . . . 
Mr. Kamber waits for 
applause . . . Monsieur 
Marshal tells us our eyes 
are closed and teaches us 
all about — the crows and 
the grasshoppers . . . Mrs. 
Halpern tries to aid by 
teaching us how to cut 
our toenails and blow 
our noses . . . Miss 
Glassman — how dare 
you fall asleep in my 
class? . . . Mrs. Hoch- 
baum sees how much her 
class enjoys elementary 
algebra wants to give 
them an opportunity to 
take it for another year 
. . . "this is the school of 
work and action ' — our 
Freshie Sing is censored 
because the administra- 
tion contends we are 
stating false information 
. . . "Central's walls are 
falling, apalling, degrad- 
ing, and fading' — but 
this lovely school is ours.

Seniors in Washington 




Most were excited but some were still doubting 
As we made up our plans for our Senior Outing. 
But as the day neared us, without too much fuss 
Forty-odd happy Seniors all boarded the bus. 
And we kept up our spirits and braved the bad weather 
By doing all things that girls do together. 
All feeling small sorrow left New York behind 
To go to D.C. where we'd be "wined " and dined. 





While still on the bus we received our first thrill 

And saw Washington lit up at night, a la Bill. 

And though Seniors, we know, almost always act lazy. 

Came alive and drove the hotel staff near crazy 

And stayed up all night having fun (or almost 

You mustn't deny us the pleasure to boast.) 

In the morning we climbed up the "needle and down. 

And were off to the mint in the "rich" part of town. 







Then sobered by feelings of sorrow and sentiment 

We went to the grave of our very last president. 

And some shed a tear and some openly cried 

For the boys who had fought for our land and who died. 

And beyond my control I sardonically laughed. 

For the boys that I know all fight only the draft. 

The Lincoln and Jeff monuments were both seen 

(The city so unlike New York is so clean) . 









And then off to the White House and then FBI 

W^ith guides who evoked many a faint heart and sigh 

And though I m aware of how odd it may seem 

We spent some of our time in a quaint Wa.\ Museum. 

And on the ^vay home ^ve stopped off at Mount Vernon 

To see history live is the best way of learnin' 

And all in all the trip was a thrill 

We could never forget and what s more never ^vill.

EXAMINATION PROCEDURES: (IX) The following policy, 
adopted unanimously by the faculties of both departments, will 
he rigorously enforced — without exceptions! Any student 
who — during the course of any examination, any test or any 
quiz — talks (for whatever reason), looks at anyone else's 
paper (for whatever reason), does not fully abide by her 
teacher's instructions, or who otherwise acts improperly in any 
manner whatsoever, will be subject to the following uniform, 
mandatory procedure, REGARDLESS of whether cheating was 
or was not involved! The paper wUl be confiscated immedi- 
ately; the student will be reported to the office right after that 
period's conclusion; the student will be automatically dropped 
from that subject with the failing grade of 35% to be entered 
on both the term sheet and the permanent record; and, if 
permitted to slay in the school on a probationary basis, the 
student will be required to retake this subject (or its displaced 
equivalent) the next summer in a recognized summer school! 
Our Yeshiva will NOT — under ANY" conditions or circum- 
stances — tolerate situations which are conducive to the viola- 
tion of the severe HDf! of nyT D^* JJl ! It is ele- 
mentary that any and every genuine rniT) — institution 
MUST insist on exemplary honesty!

Dear Mr. Weinstein, 

Please forgive my daughter for not filling up on 
gas for today's lesson. Yesterday she was bitten 
by a snake in the grass and was confined to bed. 
She did, however, tune in to your station 
(J.B.W.) and was pleased to hear her class- 
mates keeping the ball roHing. 
Anyway, I'm sure a man hke you— a giant among 
httle men— will leave his footprints in the sands 
of Central's times. 

Wishing you hatzlacha and kol-tov, I am 
Your Friend, 
Ahce's mother 



Dear Mrs. Gottleib, 

I couldn't study my meehm last night as I witnessed 
a great happening. I have these relatives who fled from 
the Nazis in Germany, and after much torture, they suc- 
ceeded in getting to the Holy Land^Aretz— with the aid 
of a great power high above us. As I watched them 
descending, tears swelled in my eyes because I knew that 
this was a miracle from above. 

At the airport, my mother was crying for she hadn't 
seen them in 29 years. I only wish you had been there 
for I kno\v that you would appreciate this sort of experi- 
ence. 

My only hope now is: Lashana haba B rushalayem. 

Will you excuse me for not doing my meelim? 

Thank you. 



Dear Mrs. Beck. 






I have come to the conclusion that you are 
completely right when you say that this is our 
bread and butter subject. I therefore agree fully 
with you when you kick me out of class for not 
using my paper clamps. After all, a typewriter is 
one's best friend. 

Furthermore, I promise to set my margins regu- 
larly at t^vent>' and seventy and hope you will 
accept a truthful apology from a baal tchuvanik. 

W^ith great respect and admiration. 




Dear Monsieur Marshal, 

Please allow my daughter to return to her old 
seat. You have placed her in front of you and 
she complains of nearsightedness and big objects 
moving back and forth in front of her. My daugh- 
ter tells me that you are a very considerate man 
and I trust that you will be considerate in this 
matter also. 



Sincerely, 

Mrs. Icanth C. Strate 




From: Rabbi Fulda 

To: All teachers and students 

I wish to remind the entire faculty and student 
body of our esteemed Yeshiva that we are seven 
fire t n drills behind our quota. This is un- 
excusable. 

Therefore, seven fire drills will take place to- 
morrow, »t * K between classes (so as not to 
disturb Vip *TID'V )• Every member of 
the faculty and student body t ' A * E^ is re- 
ponsible to familiarize him/herself with file drill 
instructions posted a" 1 in the classrooms. 



Dear Future Secretary of America, 

I am happy to inform you that I accept your sincere 
apology. I would normally not be this strict, but it is most 
important for you to fully understand the angularity, 
continuity, and fluidity personified in this problem. 

With best wishes for a happy chodesh, good today, 
and better tomorrow, I remain, 

P.S. I am happy to inform you that your good will and 
sincerity have earned for you the title of "Girl of the 
Month . Along with this, I wish to remind you that your 
eyes show true humor and a budding sense of values. 
Remember: Beauty is only skin deep. 




/ long to do something wonderful 

To stir the soul, the heart, the mind 

Of those who will succeed me

To leave a bountiful wealth behind 

As others did to lead me 

I want to be immortal 

I want to never die 

To always be remembered 

Though centuries pass by

To accomplish one great deed 

And I hope beyond all hoping 

That 1 always feel the need.

To Sit and Stare 

To sit and stare and all the vvnile— 

thinking 
Wanting to be out there ^ with the others, 

in the sun. 
But afraid. 

Being out there ~~ playing, shouting, fighting 
Part of the group — ' the Leader. 
Wanting to be carried by the wind. 
To feel a new world. 
To be something — remembered. 
Not as a part, but, an individual. 
Even to just sit, not here, outside. 
In the sun or the rain 
It doesn't matter. 
Just not in here, all the while, 
Sitting, and staring, and thinking 
Until the sun set and the slats 

were prison bars across my face. 
Until she asked— 
"Where'd you go today? " 
No place. 
"What'd you do? " 
Nothing. 

Zissie Ciment

Hills Are as Mountains 



Hills are as mountains. 
Ponds deep as seas. 

A sparrow is an eagle, 
A bush is a tree. 



No ends have the oceans, 
The same with the skies. 

For everything is bigger 
Through a little boy's eyes. 



But mountains grow smaller. 
The ponds not so deep. 

The eagle is but a sparrow. 
The tree but a seed. 



The oceans have ends. 
For, so I've been told. 

All things grow smaller. 
As a small boy grows old. 

Miriam Fas Jag

Metamorphosis 

Fugue for the Ill-Tuned Clavier 



I sit in the bus, 

staring at the raindrops, 
staring through the raindrops, 
staring through the "One Way" sign 

and the red and green and yellow light, 
and wondering whether I am 
red or green or yellow. 
1 get off the bus and sit on the bench. 
1 throw the soggying Times toward the can 
with the sign that says "Don't Be A Litterbug." 
(It reminds me of the ill-drawn 
Sherut signs, whenever I look at it; 
but today I am looking through it, 
right through it, 

so it doesn't remind me of anything.) 
The newspaper misses, and falls in a puddle. 
(If I were listening, 1 would hear the 
drip, drop, 
drip-ip, drop-op-op, 
drip-drop.) 

The drip-drop warps the paper. 

letting rivulets of the election and the Chinese question 
gurgle into the sewer. 

The gurgle stabs me, 
but I stifle the pang. 
I must not forget that today 
I am the tragic heroine. 
I lie on the grass, 

dramatically clenching a bullrush in my bicuspids. 
(Bicuspids is a good word, 
don't you think so? 
I'm going to be a writer 
when I grow up.) 
"Blades of grass, waving in the 

wind; 
Green sea, swallowing 
grasshopper sails. 
That's a good start. 
I roll down the hill, 
filling my pigtails with sweet-hay, 

filling my dirndle skirt with sweet-hay. 
smelling of sweet-hay, 
tasting sweet-hay, 
feeling like sweet-hay. 
Maybe I won't be a writer. 
Being in love takes up too much of my time. 



78 



I sit on the hill, 

fingering page fourteen 

of John Ciardis latest gibberish. 

I read him because I am 

mature. 
(I wish I ^vere a few years more mature, 

so I could outgrow him already. 

Ciardi, I mean.) 
But I ■won't grow older. 
So many years are gone aheady, 
futile years. 
Can one float, as a violent haze, 

float through hfe, 

hover over it, reach out for it 

and never touch it? 

Can one visit, and 

leaving no fingerprints, 

not have come at all? 
Then I am timeless, 
I am above time, 

and have no function. 

Maybe I will be a writer. 
"Travel, O my soul, 
through labyrinths 
of mind and time. 
Be one with them, 
for they are one. 
Yea, wander, O my soul. " 



I lie awake, 
savoring the dark, 

and the clean sheets, 

and the click-woosh, click-woosh, 

of the radiator. 
(If I were seventy, the radiator would scare me 
as it click-wooshed the seconds away.) 
But I am only twenty, 
and can laugh at clocks 
and fears. 
I think about my diary, 

("Paper is patient") and about 

the child who wrote 

my diary. 
(It I were seventeen, I would cry at every word.) 
But I am already twenty, 
and can laugh, 
because I am mature.

Phantom Friend 



She is overdressed, over made up, and talks too loudly. One 
eyebrow is arched upward as she glances surreptitiously at the 
men who pass by. She stops to look at a store window and auto- 
matically catches her reflection in the glass. She pats her hair into 
place, smooths her lipstick with her little finger, and smiles like 
the cat that swallowed the canary. For a moment a shadow seems 
to cloud her face but ^ she bats it away with her stiff eyelashes. 
She is fifty-seven. 



I feel good; I look good. My eyes filter out all gloom and greed 
I know is around me. I am aware of myself and my awareness 
makes me happy. I step into a phone booth and pretend to make 
a call, while I straighten my stocking. I am seventeen. 



I have never met her. I do not kno^v if she exists, but our 
destinies were plotted simultaneously. Our paths have never 
crossed but I will make her acquaintance. 

Hedv Simon 



81 



I Am Somebody 



I have climhed the steep path up the mountain. 
I am up there, on top, only me ana my thoughts. 
And 1 shout out to the wind, to the sky above, and to 

the deaf ears below, 
I am. somebody! 

Only 1 am up there, filled with a cold emptiness. 

My shouts have fallen upon deaf ears 

It is the same as before. 

Only now I know for sure that I am nobody. 



WorW.' Are you listening? 

One day 1 shall return. 

One day when your silence shall not greet me, 

For I will hear only the sweet music in the air. 

That day has finally come 

And 1 have proof that I am somebody. 

1 need not shout it out; it is here in my heart. 

For he has made a somebody of me.

Dead? 



People have called death everything, 
from true life to heaven and/or hell. 
Poets say we must look forward to death 
We must love it, seek it. 

I don't beheve poets are fools. 

Why then do they fool themselves about death? 

They don't dare lie about life! 

Death is the end 

but there is an afterlife. 

I know I believe in it; I do. 

Never fear my friends who perform religious acts. 

But anyone who loves life MUST hate death. 
A spirit remains, but the physical is gone. 
No more can one speak, act, love. 




No more can one feel, no more is there loneliness. 

Perhaps death is good. 

I am lonely—' 
I have no one'- 
I wish 1 did have someone 

For then I wouldn't cry when I think of death. 
What frightens me is the death of youth- 
Why were they created if only to die? 
They will never know burning passion, 

or tingling cleanliness—' 
Neither do I. 
Perhaps I have died.

Seventeen 



The sun's Aaniinq rays 

play tic-tac-toe 

against the cool shadows 

through the thin, window slats. 
1 can see the squirrels 

in my backyard tree 

playing hide-and-go-seek 

like a group of little children. 
For as long as 1 can remember 

they've been playing childish games 

in that tree. 
They never grow up — I'm glad . . . 

1 play a game when I'm alone. 
The object is to find as many 
good things as I can. 



I love to 
Wa(c?i a child's wide-eyed glee 

Laughter means she's happy. 
See the fortune-telling daisy. 

Beauty is so simple. 
Marvel at the human mind. 

Ability is a gift. 
Learn to ask the question why, 

Discovery is such joy. 
Savor being sweet sixteen. 

Magic is a mystery. 

But now I'm seventeen^-' 
and certain people say 

it s time that I grew up, 
the game I play is only make-believe. 

If finding good is a child's game, 

then I will be a child 

when 1 grow up. 
And prove that they are wrong; 

~~if they are. . . .
